in the last week alone. better tools, a better education, that most basic tool, a desk, a place to sit, a place to read, a place to learn. since i partnered with unicef with the k.i.n.d. fund, we have raised $4,734,944. you have filled me with awe each year and i am getting hesitant to tell you how much we have raised because it might sound like we have all the money we need. we don't. if i could bring you with me to see schools without a single desk, you would know that we need every desk we can possibly pay for. every one. and at the pace we're going, more r we're more than a generation alone for providing desks for every classroom in malawi. i will be asking for your help for kids in need of desks. tonight, i want to introduce a new option you will have in contributing to the can k.i.n.d. fund and that is a tuition program i've been working on with unicef for over a year now. some of the better schools in malawi charge a tuition, a small tuition, which means that some of the student who would thrive in those schools cannot attend those schools. it's especially difficult for girls to

york and across the country. is the attitude about urban education and how many kids we are losing their are not graduating from schools. basically saying, we have an issue here we have to deal with. i try to discuss that with other mayors across the state and with the decision makers. we have to come up with solutions. it is a burden for a lot of cities, not just school taxes but property taxes and trying to balance the budget to provide the services needed. this are two major problems. this is a very old city. we have a lot of beautiful historic buildings. and in many ways when people do not take care of them, it is hard to keep them on the tax rolls or make sure people invest in them. basically, i have been through five governors in my 19 years as the mayor. i deal directly with the governors and the people in the senate and the assembly. we talk about the state capital which was tax -- 74% tax exempt. a lot of it was a result of the state taking over a large percentage of our city. a lot of it was non for profits. i have had a good working relationship with people in the state

to do effective voter education and so until we address that, that systemic issue, they can you're going to continue to see things over and over again. you know, if you want to -- something that is a little bit kind of absurd situation, in galveston, texas, there were 39 polling places that opened in the afternoon because they didn't give enough time to turn the machines on and let them warm up and the judge had to extend polling place hours. so simple things that impact voters in an area. that was something that was surprising to us. or the high number of provisional ballots where they didn't have the right registration information. then you had, especially in predominantly african-american precincts, voters who were showg up and they were given provisional ballots. and there were so many provisional ballots, there were some voter had to walk away. and that shouldn't happen in this country. >> a great example. >> we had a great voter protection team headed by bill bauer and court in the, and we had a good system to track. so just break down what we saw on election day. 32% of the issues

and inventor and onetime presidential candidate himself believed that the best education should be ax ses i believe to anyone that qualified to get in. anyone including women and people of color. the question of whether a student can pay for tuition, he thought that should be irrelevant. for more than a century now every student has received a full tuition scholarship at one of the best colleges of the country. that's the mission and history of the cooper union. in its more recent history, school administrators announced to chip away at the policy. they will begin charging tuition for gradual students starting this school year. undergrads are safe for now but maybe later they will have admissions too. they searched for a way out of what it described as a deepening financial hole. despite the recent financial crisis, thousand, the cooper union has maintained $600 million endowment. it owns the land beneath the chrysler building, but the school says it's operating at a loss and the shortfall has to come from somewhere, including from the students. never mind what the school's founder and name

address on the economy, jobs, and education policy. >> hello, everybody. over the last few weeks, there's been a lot of talk about deadlines we're facing on jobs and taxes and investments. but with so much noise and so many opinions flying around, it can be easy to lose sight of what this debate is really about. it's not about which political party comes out on top, or who wins or loses in washington. it's about making smart decisions that will have a real impact on your lives and the lives of americans all across the country. right now, middle-class tax cuts are set to expire at the end of the year. time is running out. and there are two things that can happen. first, if congress does nothing, every family in america will see their income taxes automatically go up on january 1st. a typical middle-class family of four would get a $2,200 tax hike. that would be bad for families, it would be bad for businesses, and it would drag down our entire economy. now, congress can avoid all this by passing a law that prevents a tax hike on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. that means 98% of
